    I received this message yesterday from Fastmail my IMAP email provider:

    " The server has allowed Fastmail accounts
    to connect to programs that could not support up-to-date encryption
    methods, such as older email clients, CRM systems, and printer or
    scanners with a "scan to email" function. We have made it available in
    the past as a convenience to users who otherwise would not be able to
    connect to their email client or program.

    certain security upgrades. For this reason, we will be removing on February 3, 2020, and any clients or
    other programs using this server no longer be able to connect.

    If the client or program you’re using can support newer encryption
    methods, we expect you will be able to continue to connect by using
    our updated server names. For details, please see [our help page for
    server names and

    I appears that FastMail supports app passwords which should work with Pegasus Mail.

    Yes, I looked into that procedure.  I don't know if that's how I want to proceed.  Sorry, this was posted without quotes from Irelam's message.
